About Inter Arma:
Formed in 2006, Inter Arma is one of the most talked about heavy bands to come out of Richmond, VA . The group (consisting of T.J. Childers - Drums, Steven Russell - Guitars, Trey Dalton - Guitars, Mike Paparo - Vocals, Joe Kerkes - Bass) released their crushing debut full-length Sundown via Forcefield Records in 2010 to much critical acclaim. Combining a punk rock ethos with an esoteric blend of psychedelia, black metal, and doom/sludge, the quintet quickly developed a name for themselves in the underground through relentless touring and mesmerizing live performances.
In 2012, the band released a 12" EP entitled Destroyer via Toxic Assets Records. Based on the strength of this EP they immediately signed to Relapse Records their sophomore full-length Sky Burial was unleashed in March 2013 to rave reviews, and places in multiple end of year countdowns, including Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Metal Sucks, Decibel Magazine, Spin and many more. The band has been steadily touring the world with the likes of Baroness, Russian Circles, Windhand, Ulcerate and numerous others since the release of Sky Burial. In the Fall of 2014, the band is set to release a single song, 40+ minute EP entitled The Cavern.
